GAPC FAQs What is the $ amount next to each tournament? These are standard cash tournaments and that is the total cost to buy in to each. The casino takes their cut for costs of dealers, etc…with the rest going to the prize pool and paid out to approximately the Top 10% finishers.
Do I need to purchase a ticket to play? Yes. To play in any of the cash tournaments players will need their GAPC Ticket.
What do I get for my ticket? For the Party and Poker ticket you have access to all the cash tournaments and nightly parties as well as a GAPC tshirt and card protector when you arrive. For the Poker Only ticket you won’t have access to the party.
Do I need to stay at Planet Hollywood? Not necessarily, however the time and cost of waiting and paying for a cab will get old fast. To experience the entire event we certainly recommend staying on property.
Are the hotel rates reasonable? Absolutely. The regular rate (even on hotels.com) for that week at Planet Hollywood are nearly twice the price. We spent a lot of time negotiating a great rate for our players.
Do I need to stay the entire time? Not necessarily, but why would you want to leave Vegas early?
What’s this rumor about a GAPC Reality TV show? The rumors are true. We are putting together a reality show for the GAPC in November and YOU could have a chance to participate in it. More details coming soon.
If my partner doesn’t play poker, do they need to purchase a ticket to go to the party? Non poker players can purchase a party only ticket at Registration for $35.
